Elyas is one of our clients.
That you are 14 years old. You have just witnessed your parents being killed in bombing strikes in Aleppo and barely escaped yourself, and you are thrust into a perilous journey over land and water to seek safety and refuge.
Imagine that you are afraid and isolated. As you are shuffled from port to port, you feel disoriented, lost and alone.
Now imagine that you have been resettled in the United States. You are living in poverty with a family you don’t know, trying to learn English, suffering with PTSD, depression, and constantly triggered by memories of the war. Although you are physically safe, fear and trauma have followed you.
PTR is providing critical mental health care to help Elyas heal from his terrifying trauma, grieve his losses and develop a sense of safety again.
